Notice biographique

Father Ted Sobisch was a Roman Catholic priest and teacher who was involved in the establishment and development of Northeastern University and Nipissing College in North Bay, Ontario. Sobisch was a member of the Congregation of the Resurrection and a teacher by training, having received a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Western Ontario and Bachelor of Pedagogy from the University of Toronto in 1953. He served as the Principal of St. Jerome's High School in Kitchener for three years before moving to North Bay in 1960 to accept a position as Promotional Director for the planned new junior university at North Bay College (Scollard Hall), where he also worked as a teacher and registrar. Although the junior university initiative at Scollard Hall did not become a reality, he continued to be an active participant in the campaign to establish a university in North Bay and served on the Executive Council of Northeastern University from 1960-1966. When Nipissing College was established, he served on its Board of Governors from 1969 to 1978. He was also Chairman of the Nipissing College Advisory Committee and was helped found the Nipissing College Alumni Association. His contributions to education were recognized in 1985 when Nipissing University College awarded him an Honourary Doctorate of Law. Sobisch retired in 1978 and died in Kitchener, Ontario in March 1987.

Historique de la conservation

The custodial history of the records is unknown until they came into the possession of Bob Surtees, who had been planning to write a history of Nipissing University before his death in 2001. His wife Margaret Surtees donated the records to the Archives in October 2014. Files 0076-09, 0077-01, 0077-02 were not part of the Surtees donation and their custodial history is entirely unknown, but it is likely that they were transferred from a Nipissing University department to the Library sometime before the Archives was formally established in 2014.

Portée et contenu

Additionally, the fonds documents Sobisch's research and writing of an unpublished book titled <i>A University is Born : The History of Northeastern University College,</i> and it also reflects the work of Herb Brown as a member of the Northeastern University Committee, Executive Council of Northeastern University, and Nipissing College's Board of Governors. Fonds is arranged into five series based the committee or project they relate to, or based on provenance in the case of Herb Brown's records.
